ASA 5505 booting into ROMMON

Hi Experts,

This is a cisco ASA 5505, I did a password recovery, got in and configure config register 0x00000041, write mem, reboot and after rebooting the firewall went into ROMMON over and over.
These are the steps I took:
1.- From ROMMON re-installing the asa version 7.2.3 using tftp server and the image was successfully installed. I was able to log in and run boot system flash:asa723.bin, write mem, reboot and the firewall which continue rebooting and rebooting until I click on Escape key then I went back to ROMMON.
2.- I went through the tftp process, change the config register 0x1, write mem, reboot and continue rebooting and rebooting until I click on Escape key then went back to ROMMON.
3.- I went through the process of running the rommon1>confreg process and when I configure boot, the firewall went into rebooting and rebooting again.
I notice that when I run the tftp process, connected all the way to ciscoasa# and run sh version: it says that: system boot is tftp:// I have checked all the possible ways.
Please advise

While you were in did you copy the file to flash? just because its running from TFTP does NOT mean when it reboots the software image is in the firewalls flash disk?

like so

Boot Cisco ASA From TFTP (Upgrade from ROMMON)
